Re: 1963 TBird brake booster question.
A TuffStuff 2131 booster/ MC combo will work with some modifications. $173 at Summit. You want a 1" bore master. See the attached pictures for reference.
B0: factory booster with dual master retrofit. The Tuff Stuff is about 1/2" shorter than this.
B1: Measuring the old booster.
B2: Trimming the new one, blue tape as a guide.
B3: Using a heim joint to adapt the booster to my factory brake pedal.
B4: Enlarge the holes in the factory bracket to fit the bolt pattern on the new booster.
B5: Modifying the factory brace to fit around the longer dual master.
On the upside: I sold my old booster on ebay for more than the cost of the new one.
